Principal's Message

My name is Richard Eppes.  I am so excited for the opportunity to lead Gold Hill Middle School.  I have been in education for 18 years, and 16 of them have been spent in this building.  I did my student teaching while at Winthrop University here at Gold Hill Middle School.  I love Gold Hill Middle School.  I love the community it serves, and the students that fill it.  I bleed Black and Blue!!!  J  I mean it when I say this is my “Dream Job”!!!  I have worked hard to get here, and I am going to work hard to stay. 

 When I was a teacher here, I taught 6th grade math, science, and social studies.  I coached the football team and the 8th grade girls’ basketball team.  I approach life with a coach’s mentality.  I am extremely competitive, sometimes loud, easily excitable, and usually acting crazy!  I have coached or coached against a lot of my students in different sports and different rec. programs.  I am the coach that is usually being loud and acting crazy, but I do it all with a smile on my face.  All of what I do comes from a love of helping young people. 

 To be a part of the Gold Hill family, you need to know my family.  I married WAY out of my league!!!  Elizabeth is a 5th grade teacher at the new Kings Town Elementary School here in Fort Mill.  She is a phenomenal wife, mother, and teacher.  We have two boys.  My oldest son, Jackson, is a former Bulldog, and is currently at Fort Mill High School.  My youngest son, Carter, is starting Gold Hill this year as a 6th grader!!!  Both of my boys are extremely athletic and enjoy playing all types of sports.  They keep me busy when I am not working here at the school, but I love every minute of it! 

 I look forward to a great school year and many great years to come.  I know we are living in unprecedented times.  Times when the plan for school is ever changing.  I promise that we will get through this time of uncertainty together. 

 Go Bulldogs!
